The much awaited reshuffle has taken place on the Sky Digital EPG, with many international TV and radio services being given new channel numbers.

Today’s EPG overhaul, which was revealed first exclusively on our sister site Sky Digi Online was reported back in October here. The date for the change was then delayed due to problems experienced in the new version of the Sky Digital software, which was downloaded on Sky boxes only in January. Details here.

The EPG, which has remained unchanged since Sky’s launch in 1998 now includes two new genres to accommodate the vast number of dating and lifestyle channels. The two new categories are “Lifestyle and Culture” & “Gaming and Dating”. The EPG reshuffle has also made way for the addition of many new services awaiting launch, which was becoming impossible due to the lack of space on the channel line-up.

Another big change today sees all radio channels on Sky Digital being available on four digit numbers instead of the previous three. More information here.

All Asian and foreign TV channels can be found under the new EPG category “International”. The new list of numbers for the

“International” channels can be found below. For the full list of Sky Digital EPG changes, please visit Sky Digi Online here.
